A community gathered Tuesday night to mourn the loss of one of the Bucks County murder victims.

Gathered in prayer, the Holy Ghost Prep community remembered 19-year-old Jimi Patrick, who graduated from the school last year.

Prosecutors say he was slain by confessed killer Cosmo DiNardo, who attended the same school.

Fr. Jeff Duaime said, "There's very little that can be said to help make sense of such a tragedy."

As DiNardo's alleged actions led authorities through a tense and grueling investigation last week, Bucks County communities were banding together to support law enforcement.

"This was a devastating time for this community," said Solebury Township Police Chief Dominick Bellizzie. "They saw the worst of humanity, and we saw the best with the way the community came to support us."
"It's a great community," acknowledged Tim Lohan of the New Hope Eagle Fire Company.

"We would have never been able to sustain the digging in the hole, the amount of work we were doing in that heat without the community support," said Bellizzie.

The search for the four missing men is over now, leaving loved ones to cling to their faith as they move forward.

Funerals for two of the victims are set for Thursday. The rest will take place later in the week.
